Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, c. 1930

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade marches past the Dorilton on W. 71st and Broadway.  The balloon in the foreground looks something like Eeyore from the Winnie the Pooh books, which had come out around that time.  The movies were still years away.  It could just be an unnamed donkey.
